Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Sones is a very nice man. However, he is way too old to still be practicing. He's very old fashioned and tends to get confused easily. He even laughed at me when I told him about having a certain mental disorder that he'd never heard of. Needs to retire. I have been fighting his bills for the past 2 years with his office, they have a lack of understanding.
